Polye welcomes investigation into NHC

The Opposition has welcomed the appointment of a committee to investigate the state owned National Housing Corporation.

Opposition Leader, Don Polye says the investigations committee must investigate the root of corruption within NHC and bring to justice officers implicated.

Mr Polye says stakeholders and tax payers have lost faith in NHC as over the years it had failed to deliver on its mandate to provide affordable housing to hardworking Papua New Guineans.

He says NHC has been a milking cow where cash hungry officers have made fortunes out of it, at the expense of tax payers.

Mr Polye said Papua New Guineans who have lived in their homes for many years have been thrown out on the streets as corrupt officers entered into dubious deals to sell properties.

“The appointment of an investigate committee to look into the affairs of NHC should have been done some four years ago,” Mr Polye said. “What took the government so long to appoint a committee to investigate NHC?” he questioned.

The Opposition leader says credible people must be appointed to the committee if the government is serious about weeding out corruption at NHC.
